I like how dry it gets the pad, it's very nice for sliding under furniture and such. I have all wood floors in a large home, so it'll get a work out. Have only used it once, if it begins to fail I will edit my review.
Usually I kneeling on the ground to map the floor because my backache is killing me from bending over. Now this Mop is save me! It's light although so it's easy to move from room to room. I have a golden retriever. So there's hair everywhere. Sometimes the vacuum blows the hair on the air. Mop is more better for this situation.
The pads have fiber "hooks" that need to be slotted onto the mop, so that the pad doesn't fall off when putting the mop through the rinse/dry slots. Once I figured that out well, everything works pretty well here. The "dry" side gets the mop to a mildly-moist point, dry enough that the floor dries within about a half-hour in dry conditions. The nature of the handle means you need to be a bit careful when mopping, just to make sure you aren't accidentally-unscrewing the handle. (and it doesn't take much looseness to make the handle very wobbly.
Ok, I got my mop on Saturday but today was my first time using it. I wasn't sure if this mop was going to be for me. I'm kind of picky, love things to be clean. It worked great, I loaded it with hot water, and took off. I have hardwood floors and even with ringing out the mop a couple of times I thought the floor had a lot of water on it. I used my bona cleaner in a spray bottle and I just mopped my floor. Then I switched the pad to a dry one and picked up as much water as I could. Before long my floor was dry. Then, I opened the top of the bucket to see if I was really getting that floor clean, omg..I was living in a dirt pit!!! My floors were beyond dirty. I think this mop does a better job than any other method. I would suggest this mop and bucket for anyone regardless of age, it's that easy. Great product, my floors will get done weekly now...love a clean house.
I hate touching a dirty nasty mop, I hate smelly sponge mops, rag mops are disgusting! I have tried several mops proclaiming to be easy to use, no need to touch the mop head, great for hardwood or tile floors - and I have been sorely disappointed...until now! Straight out of the box, easy to assemble, easy to use and I do not have to touch the mop head or the dirty water. The entire mop breaks down and stores inside the mop bucket which is a bonus - I live in a small house so storage is at a premium - this is actually small enough that I can also use it in my RV! Love Love Love my mop!
